Redruth Wassail 2017

The Christmas and Midwinter seasons are the Cornish Culture Associations busiest time of year.  November the 25th is the 3rd annual revival of the Redruth Wassail. An informal start this year at 4pm at the Penventon Hotel followed by a formal start at 6pm outside the Regal cinema. If you would like to take part you will be most welcome. As in every case CCA events are open to everyone.  If you want to take part then you can also join us at the Miners Arms at 3pm on Saturday the 18th of November when we hold a rehearsal. If you can't make it don't worry the words of the songs will be printed for people on the night so as many people as possible can take part.

Redruth Wassail is not the kind of Wassail that many people are familiar with, namely the Apple Wassail. In this tradition Wassailers parade through towns presenting the wassail bowl to local landlords, homeowners and dignitaries.
